Gain both academic and professional training in planning, real estate and property development on this four-year enhanced undergraduate degree. The curriculum for the first three years is the same as our BA (Hons) Urban and Regional Planning, during which you will consider the issues faced by professionals in dealing with the planning and management of all aspects of our built and natural environments. The fourth year of study is at master's level and provides professional training in planning, real estate and property development. Accredited by both the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the fourth year covers a wide range of subjects including real estate business and law, commercial asset management and property valuation. An overseas fieldtrip allows you to experience planning and real estate challenges in an international context. You will also undertake a client-based project where you will work in a small group on a real-life project, interpreting the brief, carrying out the investigations and reporting directly to an external client. The MPRE satisfies both the spatial and specialist planning requirements for initial qualification with the RTPI and is accredited under the Commercial Property Practice, Valuation, and Planning and Development pathways of the RICS. Manchester is a great place to study planning, real estate and property development; it was the world's first industrial city and is now a vibrant 21st century metropolis. It is a place of major urban change with plenty of scope to explore urban development. We have excellent links with the planning and real estate professions, and site visits, field trips and guest speakers feature regularly.
